With Uncle Junior still in jail, Tony has taken over the family. He's surprised when Big Pussy returns from hiding in Puerto Rico, but after some hesitation he is welcomed back into the fold. Tony begins settling accounts elsewhere however. Dr. Melfi is seeing her patients in a dingy motel and wants nothing to do with Tony Soprano. This is bad news for him as he's starting to have blackouts again. Meanwhile Christopher is operating a boiler room selling cheap or non-existent stocks to unwary investors but some of the men he has working for him lack the finesse you might normally expect. Tony's sister Janice appears out of the blue after many years absence. He's not pleased when he realizes her plans. Written by
Did You Know?
Big Pussy tells Tony about his back problem, "this freakin' spondeelilolizthisis". He is actually talking about spondylolisthesis, a forward displacement of a vertebra which usually occurs in the lower back. It is most often a degenerative condition of aging or is inherited. Even a mild case (Grade 1 out of Grades 1 to 4) can be very painful and debilitating. See more
